9780099520436: The Pankhursts: The History of One Radical Family

The suffragettes outraged Victorian society—yet behind the protests, arrests, and hunger strikes, this comprehensive and compelling biography reveals that the family lives of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, the movement's leading lights, were just as dramatic. Martin Pugh's meticulous research makes use of neglected archive material and eye-witness accounts to examine the tense relationships, tortured political disagreements and alliances, and very public victories and defeats that marked the lives of this sometimes dysfunctional, but always exceptional, family. While exposing the inner workings of the suffragette movement, this astonishing account explores the triumphs and tragedies of four extraordinary women who changed the course of women's history.

About the Author:

Martin Pugh is the author of 10 books on 19th- and 20th-century British political, social, and women's history, including Hurrah for the Blackshirts!, The March of the Women, and State and Society.

Review:

"A marvellously gripping narrative with twists and turns of shock and poignancy that are worthy of a three-decker Victorian novel...exposes the full extent of the dysfunctional family that lay just beneath the surface of the Pankhursts' public image" * Independent on Sunday * "Takes all the previous works on its subject and nudges them off the shelf" * Irish Times * "A family saga like no other, superbly researched and profoundly stirring" * Sunday Times * "Move over, Mitfords, The Pankhursts demand centre stage, as women who emerged from Edwardian drapery to break the rules of British society" * Literary Review *
